No plugins with farr
« on: July 21, 2009, 05:40:52 AM »
I just installed FARR on windows 7 and the list of plugins is empty even though they are all installed in C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins any ideas? I can't see what folder FARR is looking in - perhaps its the wrong folder, please add an "open plugin folder" link in the plugin manager dialogue.

on a new install, dont be fooled by the full looking folder of plugins.. these are just placeholders to help the updater show you which plugins you can get.  no plugins are installed by default.

Ah I see, that did throw me off.
I reloaded the plugins and the one I installed wasn't showing.

Running FARR once as an administrator seems to have solved the problem it now sees the plugin even though I'm no longer running it as admin :)

as someone who has been using Windows 7 RC for some time, i'd like to add that Farr works very well with Win7. kudos to mouser. :Thmbsup:
